The Single Sided Dynamic Walk is available in either a medial or lateral version. The Single Sided Dynamic Walk provides the same function as its double sided counterpart but also possesses charactaristics which provide a greater choice when selecting your ideal variant.
With both PEEK rods placed along one side of the AFO, a smaller profile is created in the shoe, allowing you a wider choice of suitable footwear.
The most suitable choice will depend on the shape and movement of the ankle during the gait cycle.
If the ankle pronates excessively at any point during the gait cycle, then to avoid contact with the AFO, the lateral version should be selected. If the ankle supinates excessivly during the gait cycle, the medial verison will be the most suitable choice.
